Synopsis:
To those around her, Sandy is the archetypal Australian woman – bold, brash, confident and up to any challenge. But when she is charged with playing tour guide to a Japanese businessman who is a potential investor in her company, it is not a task she relishes. Driving across the vast Australian outback, cultural and personal differences make for an uncomfortable ride. Hiromitsu's uncommunicative manner and sexist comments irritate Sandy, but she must keep her feelings to herself if she is to prevent offending her company's guest. For Hiromitsu, Sandy is everything that he finds unappealing about western women – she is loud, aggressive and headstrong.
However, they soon find they are attracted to each other, and an unusual and intense relationship develops.

Stick with it - Japanese Story review by DN

Spoiler Alert
23/12/2018

This was a slow burn for us but worth sticking with as the film definitely improved about half way through. The end was quite unexpected and delivered some wonderful and moving acting with haunting japanese music to add to the drama. Well worth watching. Toni Colletti has gone up in our estimations after watching this film as a talented actress with the natural ability to act out so many different emotions.
